If you look at my signature you can readily determine that I have a ZHP.......hence I am taking the parts required and assimilating the new M3 wheel to my covers, buttons...etc. This should be NO mystery at this point. LOL

Vaheh, Crevier rocks and is assembling the required parts and throwing them into the box and shipping.

I didn't follow you either "with what you see is what you get" I think I do now. What you are saying is that all those pictures I have seen of assembled complete wheel packaged in the box in other threads are more than just the $340. The $340 ticket price offered from Crevier is the wheel only PN 32342229500 as shown in this thread. Now I get it!

So in total going for a complete wheel, buttons and trim are different BMW part numbers, minus the airbag goes for alot more than $340 from what you are telling me. The picture of complete wheels in the box in other threads and your pic of just a bare wheel is what threw me off. I think I read too many M3 wheel posts trying to get the best price......

I guess I really lucked out then! I almost order the wheel, which I thought was complete from Crevier for $340 on Tuesday. Instead I stumbled across I a complete M3 wheel with trim and buttons minus the airbag off an 04. It's mint! I snagged it up for $280 shipped to my door from a fanatic on a different forum. I paypaled him Wednesday and I found it on my doorstep today!! Here I thought I saved a mere $60 but in reality I saved much, much more based on what you are saying! How much more? Anyone know? I didnt see any of the best costs of the trim and buttons mentioned in other m3 wheel threads.

I am slapping that baby on tomorrow, supposed to be 70 degrees here in Connecticut, great day for a foliage drive with a new M wheel!! Out with the sport wheel!

If i order from them, everything comes pre-assembled right? Its a simple plug and play. Also, these are new wheels for $340 right, not used ones?
Thanks
Matt

EDIT- According to this DIY, what i ordered comes with the M lower part and the buttons. I gave this exact PN and as u see he has all the parts

From what guitarvenue is saying, my above thread explains it all. $340 is for the bare wheel, no buttons or trim from what he is saying. I based all my info I what I read in previous posts, not by actually calling Crevier. I assumed from pics I saw posted in other thread of complete wheels in boxes from Crevier, $340 was the total price. I guess that's not the case. $450 for a total wheel could be a good price then from what guitarvenue explained.

Well $450 is the retail price, im getting it for $360 because i have a friend who has an account with a local dealer. So if i get the full wheel for $360 sounds like im getting a steal

OK..now I am totally confused!!! That PN in that link is what Crevier has for $340 ....if it indeed comes with trim and buttons, I was correct with what I said in the first place, complete wheel from Cevier for $340!! Thats the best deal out there. Buying a $270 wheel from overseas is a deal, waiting for it is too painful. Buy the complete wheel from Crevier, sell the trim to anothe fanatic and the wheel still costs you less than the one on Ebay..... Are we all in agreement? Someone needs to call Crevier or post in the forum below to confirm what they get for $340 unless another fanatic pipes in that already ordered from them. Also check this out:

My record is still in tact!

I guess if you can wait a month and don't need the guts of the wheel, order it from Ebay as this post suggests.

I agree on Ebay , especially something from overseas. I did buy an m5 rear spoiler though for my 530. Packaged in China, painted for $75. Looks great, lots less than the dealer. Sometimes its worth the gamble, sometimes its not. For a $70 difference on the steering wheel, I wouldn't Ebay it, plus as I said, you get all the other items which you could sell off if you didn't need them.

In closing....we will all be very happy with our M wheels no matter how we got em!!

I don't care for that look AT ALL! He must have ordered the Ebay wheel and used his exisiting sport wheel trim. Hopefully we will save future souls the trouble with this confusing thread!

After further review, this is only a DIY for removing and replacing the trim. If you look closely it's a sport wheel, not an M wheel. It looks like he changed his trim first and created a DIY, then decided to buy an M wheel and did another DIY........as you stated though, some people still use the sport wheel trim on the M wheel.
